4) Rapco braided cables, Ernie ball strings(9-42 or 10-46), Dunlop Tortex 1.14 mm picks


I love my setup. mostly because of the amp. I also love my guitars, but i'm itching to get a new guitar with great pickups, a stable trem(floyd rose) and 24 frets with good access to all of them

when i get my next guitar, my setup will slaughter all in its path!

keep it metal

II. If you've ever heard the band Evergrey, that's a pretty good example of how my tone usually sounds. When I detune I get more of a Gothenburg In Flames type thing.

1- Guitar

1979 Les Paul 'The Paul' Solidwalnut

2- Amp

Trace Elliot SpeedTwin C50 w/1x12" Celestian spk, or sometimes I use a 4x10 Acoustic spk cab.

3- Effect

Yamaha SXP90 rack mount. Multi-effects.

4- Cable, etc.

Canare Star Quad custom made cables, Dunlop Tortex .060 picks, Ernie Ball super slinkies (009's).

I get that unmistakable Les Paul color in the sound. Because of the amp (4 12AX7 preamp stages) and great tone controls, I can get anything from totally clean and bright to slight overdrive for some bluesy punch to Eric Johnson sounding drive and sustain to EVH to AC/DC.

1. Fender MIM Strat all customized into oblivion (custom neck, neck pup is some hot dimarazio thing, mid pup is vintage 70s strat, bridge pup is Seymour Duncan Lil 59. Recent experiment with 1 meg pots is officially a failure however.

2 60s gibson skylark with jensen alnico speaker, (for quiet time playing) or 70s GS-2000 earth amp, also all customized into freakishess (with 15 inch speaker + tweeter) for loud playing (which I basically never do anymore).

3 Roland guitar synth/midi unit (GK 2A is the midi pup)

4. Lotta cables lying around, god knows they're all cheap n' crumby.... Santa: I need cables..., Picks are dunlop stubby's or jazz... 2 mil thick or or more please. Increasingly play fingerstyle though. Strings, Thomasfeld-Instik swing series... 1st strings I've ever played that make a really noticeable postive difference in the sound of an electric guitar.

5. The whole point of this set-up is a desperate attempt to get a relatively inexpensive solidbody electric thru rock n roll tube amps to sound like a carved top hollow body thru some $50,000 dollar amp custom-made by 'insert German name here'

As you might imagine, it doesn't quite work.
